SANTA CLAUS, Ind. -- As if riding on a roller coaster wouldn't already give her a shock, Austin Crecelius took it one step further by proposing to his girlfriend while riding on the Voyage at Holiday World.

The ring on the ride was fake in case Crecelius dropped it, but the tears that fell from the eyes of his bride-to-be were very real.

Here's what he said to her:

"At one point in time you had mentioned to me that life is like a roller coaster. And its got its up and downs, its got twists and turns, and it even throws you for a loop sometimes. And though you can go by yourself, its alot more fun to go with another person. So I wanted to ask you if you wanted to be my roller coaster buddy. Allie will you marry me?"

Crecelius posted the video to YouTube and took the time to issue a public apology to the park for taking a video camera on the ride.
